"NAYSAYER'S give wii-U need for speed a bad rap"

simple as that. just like "THE RUN" DID SUCKED. took my ps3 version back to retail store less than 15 minutes after buy it. to much like BURNOUT and wanted NEED FOR SPEED MOST WANTED not burnout wanted.why cant any of you realize this is BURNOUT slap on title NFS

CRITERION YOU SUCK!! go back to burnout and leave need for speed to a passionate developer who know the source material of need for speed.

I thought it was good fun. I spent probably a good 50hrs in the online portion. Even as an old school nfs fan I can admit taking it back to the 3do days would be a massive step backward.

However I acknowledge the game had its faults - mainly lack of customization.

edit: I also wished it had a narrative.

are you serious being a ol school gamer as myself thought criterion MOSTWANTED, HOTPURSUIT was consider good??? what drugs you on?? give me a shot I LIKE TO FLY LIKE A Eagle toooooo.

no NFS has been good since UNDERGROUND 2002 rest was craptastic.from original source material

xursz1888d ago

Underground was amazing! Carbon and (og) Most Wanted were good as well.

I feel like the NFS catalog will never be complete if we don't get NFS UG3, at least next gen.

Nevers0ft1888d ago

I dunno about NFS but your anger goes from 0 to 60 in about a second. Calm down, it's only a game.

I haven't been impressed with NFS games in recent years but I LOVE Burnout - it's the similarities to Burnout that finally convinced me to give NFS a try on the Wii U.

Being like Burnout is >not< a bad thing :)

Only people who can prove what the wiiu can do is nintendo because third parties are inconsistent.

jacksheen00001888d ago (Edited 1888d ago )

Of course Most Wanted would looks better on the wii U overall. That's a given.

The wii U has more RAM(2 gigs), 32 MB embedded eDRAM and unified shaders.

So Technically, The wii U hardware is more capable in terms of graphics and textures.

As for the Frame rate, it won't be much better than the 360/PS3 version. If you ask me, I prefer better frame rate/smooth animation over graphics any day.

what is the FPS on this game?

30 or 60?

jacksheen00001888d ago (Edited 1888d ago )

Of course 60FPS but it won't be a constant 60fps though. Something I noticed about the wii U in some of their games.

neoMAXMLC1888d ago

@jacksheen, I highly doubt it'll be anywhere near 60fps. It will be capped at 30fps just like the other two console versions.

TheModernKamikaze1888d ago

RAM doesn't really affect GFX that much.

Link0791888d ago

Stop crying they got these results using an Engine optimised for 7 years on ps3 ect when you see games using engines that are gpgpu focused then you will see a massive difference,they said the night time is their best to date ?

Ju1888d ago

The big advantage is the GPGPU (and what you can do with advanced shaders) and the 1GB RAM. But it's bottle-necked by the low bandwidth - which means more fidelity but the same resolution and framerate as current gen. Compared to PS360 you win some and lose some. This is a PS360 v1.25. Nothing more.

Link0791888d ago

WiiU gpg has 32MB eDRAM thats 140GB of bandwidth and thats just the 32MB of eDRAM the wiiu has around 200GB of bandwidth very powerful.

Ju1888d ago

You are watching the PS4 presentation? Want to contribute anything to what you just said?

patriotZero1888d ago

Shut up and Give me burnot game for PS4!

muttley651888d ago (Edited 1888d ago )

I agree, give NEED FOR SPEED game/ not slap on BURNOUT title on need for speed game claiming its need for speed but in reality it's REALLY BURNOUT.
